Cheese Counter Recipe of the Week: Tartiflette Savoyarde
Featuring Camembert, Delice de Bourgogne, Fontina, and / or Brie
This past weekend I had need of a dish inspired by the mountains, so I sought out something from Savoie. Though Tartiflette is a dish suited for cold weather ski country, I could still be persuaded to eat it even as we ease our way into spring.
Tartiflette is a baked dish of sliced, par-boiled potatoes topped with a distinctly not low calorie French cheese called Reblochon. This cheese proves hard to source here in these United States, but we certainly have access to very good substitutes. I used a bit of grated Fontina as the first layer over the potatoes followed by sliced and arranged Camembert and Brie, which was then baked in the oven.
The recipe can be viewed here on the website Serious Eats, and the only other liberty I took was subbing in rosemary for thyme. Just a matter of personal preference on that one.
Stop by our fine foods and gourmet counter to find these and other suitable cheeses, then swing by our selection of wine from Savoie for a very appropriate pairing.
